Army birthday card /Band of brothers

hello friends.
hope you are all keeping well.

Today's card is the last one for the family with 3 birthdays all on the same day. 
I hope you like this card in particular as its one specially drawn by my husband Davey.
The recipient is in the army and I chose this image cos I thought it was stunning. but I am biased LOL

The sentiment was printed directly on the base card using a camouflage style font to match in with the theme.

I kept it in black and white as I felt this was more striking.

Here is a close up of the drawing.

I matted it onto black card stock and then silver mirri card. Here is another close up without the black and silver card. And slightly lightened up.

I do hope you like this card. I hope the card was well liked.

Well it must have been an amazing time in the family with a 60th and 40th and a 21st birthday all on the same day. What a party time they had.

hope to see you all again very soon with another card.
Until then - take care
